Manchester United are ready to let go of Cristiano Ronaldo

What’s next after this announcement?

Cristiano Ronaldo did not expect this. Back at Manchester United this summer twelve years after his departure, the Portuguese had big ambitions within the club where he exploded. “I think it’s the best decision I’ve ever made… In Manchester, it’s a new chapter. I’m very happy and I want to continue making history, trying to help Manchester get great results to win trophies and great things.” Unfortunately, CR7 failed in his mission.

Indeed, the Red Devils will not win a title this 2021-22 season. It’s been five years since they won anything. And even the return of the Portuguese star has not changed anything. Still, the 37-year-old did some of the work. scoring 18 goals in 33 appearances all competitions combined, including 30 starts (3 assists). But since the beginning of the calendar year, he has found the net only 4 times. He scored a goal against Brighton on February 15 (2-0 win) and a hat-trick against Tottenham on March 12 (3-2 win).

A new incident against Everton

He was like this in silence for 11 games in 2022. This was also the case this weekend against Everton on matchday 32 of the Premier League. Powerless on the pitch, the Funchal native was particularly talked about after the match for his bloodshed in front of a Toffees fan. Reassembled, CR7 dropped the young follower’s phone. Merseyside Police have also opened an investigation following this humorous gesture.. For his part, the Manchester United player apologized on social media.

“It is never easy to manage emotions in difficult times like the one we are going through. However, we must always be respectful, patient and be an example for all young people who love the beautiful game. I would like to apologize for my outburst and, if possible, would like to invite this supporter to attend an Old Trafford match as a sign of fair play and sportsmanship.”. Therefore, the incident is closed for the time being. But on the side of the Mancunians, this new skid of CR7 raises questions. It is not the first time this season that his case has been discussed.

MU is ready to part with him

It’s no secret that the Portuguese international is not a big fan of Ralf Rangnick. A coach with whom there have been many tensions. We especially remember the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo against Manchester City. The player, visibly injured, had returned to Portugal. The English press had explained that above all he had not digested that his coach made him start on the bench. In addition, the fact that he did not attend the derby against the Skyblues had particularly upset the Manchester dressing room, which had his support.

A locker room where his agreement with Harry Maguire is not very good either. Anyway, Manchester United has always supported his star. But the situation is reversing. At the end of March, the Spanish press indicated that the Red Devils wanted to keep their top scorer. This Monday, the Manchester Evening News reveals that the residents of Old Trafford are ready to let Cristiano Ronaldo go. His return did not have the desired effect, since MU is seventh in the Premier League, and could not play in the Champions League. The British will not have a trophy either.

But his fate is not yet sealed.

Although the attacker scores, his team plays worse when he is on the field, where he does not make defensive efforts and unbalances his team according to the MENS. The English publication explains that the Mancunians plan to get rid of him. It is also hard for them to imagine the player born in 1985 staying if the club is not in C1. Even if there’s a chance to extend his contract for a year (he’s attached to MU until 2023, editor’s note), there’s a good chance he’ll leave this summer.

Saying goodbye to his enormous salary goes through the heads of the leaders, who also want to leave the possibility that the future coach arrives in a serene climate since CR7 will demand to start each match. But United has not yet ruled on his case since letting him go would mean saying goodbye to his top scorer and depopulating the attacking sector, which Martial and Cavani should already leave. Bad times for Cristiano Ronaldo, who has gone from a dream to a nightmare since his return to Manchester.
